The fourth edition of Art Market San Francisco returned to San Francisco’s Fort Mason Center’s Festival Pavilion on May 15 – 18, 2014 with great fanfare. The Bay Area’s only contemporary and modern art fair welcomed over 70 established galleries, as well as innovative newcomers from across the country presenting a significant selection of contemporary and modern works of art. Art Market SF also announced their continued partnership with the de Young and Legion of Honor and the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, as the 2014 beneficiary of the Opening Night Preview.
This year, to the pleasure of gallerists and art enthusiasts alike, the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco Board of Trustee members Jacqueline and David Sacks served as co-chairs for the Opening Night Preview event, which last year garnered approximately $40,000 for the Museums’ New Acquisitions Fund.
This premiere preview reception provided collectors and arts enthusiasts the first opportunity to meet dealers and to view gallery presentations at the 2014 fair while benefitting the New Acquisitions Fund at the de Young and Legion of Honor and the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco. The May 15th event featured musicians from the award-winning SFJAZZ High School All-Stars Combo the elegantly catered preview reception before the doors open to attendees of the Opening Night Party later that evening.
Here is a look at some of our favorite scenes from opening night.
